Holder has a hissy fit blames Daily Caller for calls for his firing

Written By: Bob - Nov• 29•11

It looks like the U.S. Attorney General is starting to crack under the pressure that has Congressmen calling for his head. When introduced to a Daily Caller reporter this afternoon, Holder took the opportunity to lash out.

Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder today demanded The Daily Caller stop publishing articles about the growing calls in Congress for his resignation because of the failed Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program.

As Holder’s aide was escorting the attorney general offstage following his remarks Tuesday afternoon at the White House, a Daily Caller reporter introduced himself and shook Holder’s hand. The reporter asked him for a response to the growing chorus of federal legislators demanding his resignation.

Holder stepped towards the exit, then turned around, stepped back toward the reporter, and sternly said, “You guys need to — you need to stop this. It’s not an organic thing that’s just happening. You guys are behind it.”

I cannot tell you how jealous I am right now, but Holder is right; the DC has really pressuring him hard, especially in recent weeks. Keep at ’em, guys. You’re doing good work.
